I’ve been quiet for a while and working hard… My head is down and my embroidery is on!! I want to see more of this on the street… Don’t’ you?

This post is waaaayyyy long overdue.  My camera has been picking up some dust so I need to thank a few people for making me pick this up again.  Let Foto Automat have a new beginning!

Kennic wears stripes with stripes and more stripes - but what I love the most is his quilted shirt jacket with a towel lining.  I love double faced fabrics.

I am also in stripes… Navy stripe overdose?

We love a good recycle. And who doesn’t love a good lemon cupcake? Bite sized goodness with something to brush the guilt away.

As you can see, my repertoire of Hong Kong summer shoes is really not that impressive… that’s right: I have 2 options, and they really aren’t that good.  Squidgy flip flops, or squeeky boots?
Flip flops dry fast, come in lots and lots of colours and don’t look too weird in a Hong Kong office… if you know how to walk in the them properly.  But they flip disgusting water onto the back of your pants and no matter how careful you are, water will find it’s way onto the place in the middle of the shoe and your foot, making them really, really squidgy… not a nice feeling.  And let’s not forget the escalator… I don’t know if any of you have ever had to hag on to dear life on the mid level escalator, but if you haven’t, try my Havaiianas on a rainy day.  Roller blades are more reliable here.
I like my (beautiful, trendy, gorgeous, catwalk) Tsukiji boots, but they make a squeeky, hollow-ish sound when I walk in them (think jello…) and look a little out of place in the office.  I also think a few spiders have made a home in them over the winter (they’re roomy enough to accommodate all of us, thankfully).
So it’s squidgy versus squeeky… what to do?  What do you wear?
And so new search begins: the search for that perfect Hong Kong summer shoe.

Half fur, half silver… I actually really, really love these.  And guess what: they were tailor made somewhere in Causeway Bay.
